I honestly don't think either situation affects the other.
I actually don't think the Fields signing would be bad..he's a great roll player..but if the Knicks match, which btw i think they will since theyre known for overspending, we should just resign Sonny and use him as trade bait at the deadline...package him with some of our other assets not name Ross, AB or JV for a star sf
is there a way for me to start a new thread?
I did that, thanks

Okay, look at what you just wrote. "...resign sonny and use him as trade bait..." And what teams would see sonny Weems as the kind of attractive bait that would get them to want to trade with the Raptors? Sonny was unable to maintain a starting position on the 25th worst team in the league at the end of the 2010/2011 season (give or take a few positions).
You need to take off those rose coloured glasses. :-)
NYK wont match... Plus LIN MIGHT WALK if FELTON is sign to a decent Pay day
Weeellll, Fields will be a Raptor. He'll be an asset to the team. The Knicks decided not to match (caught it on Sportsnet).
Caveat...dont trust theKnicks...wait until midnight for confirmation!!!
Knicks decided not to match; I also caught it on Sportsnet and it's now up on RealGM. Doesn't look like they'll be shelling out the big bucks for Lin either, since it looks like they've made a trade with the Blazers: Jared Jeffries and Dan Gadzuric for Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas.
I'm going to hold judgement on Fields' contract until I see what he can bring to the table in Casey's system. As for New York choosing Felton (for cheap) over Lin (with a questionable contract)? Gross. Just gross.
this should jumpstart the jettisoning of jj, now that the 3 is mostly set for next year.
Now that we have Fields locked up, we have a backlog at SF, PF, and Jose may want to leave. What other deals can we make to fix this roster up a bit more?
